Top 10 O-line prospects from the state of Florida since 2008


It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of Florida, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating offensive linemen the last few years.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked offensive lineman coming out of the state of Florida is Laremy Tunsil–who did not disappoint as a true freshman at Ole Miss last fall, garnering freshman all-american honors from several sources. Of course many of the top 10 guys listed below have gone on to do amazing things in college.

Here’s a look at the top O-line recruits that came from the state of Florida since ’08.
